The Bordjomi-Kharagauli National Park covers about 8% of the total territory of Georgia and is one of the largest natural parks in Europe. The diversity of physical, geographical and especially climatically conditions of Borjomi-Kharagauli has shaped the wealth and variety of its flora and fauna.
Apart from the largely untouched nature of Borjom-Kharagauli, there are numerous cultural monuments that give the visitors a chance to get engrossed into the unique world of Orthodox Christianity. In particular, there are two easily accessible churches dating back to the 9th century.
At present eight tourist trails are officially operating in the national park, most of which are open to visitors from either April or May until October. They vary in length, duration and complexity and allow visitors to choose them according to their personal liking, professional and physical abilities. The trails are registered at the Rescue and Escort Service of Georgia.
